      Dear friends,
      This letter is to invite some urgent response from you.

      The Kerala Swatantra Matsya Thozhilali Federation (Kerala Independent
      Fishworkers Federation) has brought out over 343 editions of `Alakal'
      fortnightly so far. Alakal (Waves) is a Malayalam publication bringing
      out information about the struggles and concerns of the fishing community
      as well as information oriented articles and analysis about many issues
      concerning the lives of the fishing community. This effort has resulted in
      a major awareness generation of not just the fisherpeople's movement but
      also among the supporters of the movement. The publication also
      communicates to a large section of bureaucracy, political parties, trade
      unions about the major issues related to the coastal area. Some of the
      articles from ALAKAL are also reproduced in English on the Alakal website
      (http://www.alakal.net).

      It is becoming more and more difficult to sustain a publication of this
      nature through subscriptions, though a portion of the expenses is met by
      subscribers. At the moment Alakal has a printing debt of Rs. 40,000/- to
      be paid immediately. There is an additional debt of Rs. 56,000/- for
      KSMTF, which came up during various activities of the fisherpeople's
      struggle in Kerala. Therefore, we have decided to approach all supporters
      to contribute towards this expense. Hence, we request you to contribute
      within your individual capacity whatever you can to sustain this
      meaningful venture. Individual contributions are invited from all
      supporters within your reach. Contributions can be made in the name of
      'Alakal fortnightly', payable at Thiruvananthapuram on the address given
      below. List of contributors will be published in the `Alakal' website and
      the publication. If you can mobilise subscriptions for Alakal, that would
      also be a very useful long term support. Yearly subscription of
      `Alakal'is Rs. 50/- only.

      Looking for an early response,

      T. Peter,
      President, KSMTF
